My Story


Hi, I'm Mike, your friendly scroll saw artist. I discovered art quite late in life and I can't think of anything else I would rather do. I was diagnosed with ADHD and ASD in 2019. I have struggled throughout my life and it seemed like my life had no purpose. When I was at school I was OK at drawing and hadn't had any thoughts of art until after my diagnosis. It was like a lightbulb moment for me, getting diagnosed and being told that once I start treatment I can do anything. I have no idea why I went down the path I did that brought me to starting my own business, but I am thankful to my ADHD for bringing me here!


What Inspires Me?

I am inspired mainly by the 1960s, 70s, 80s and 90s. I love subjects that have a bit of a story behind them. I am constantly delving into my past, films and TV shows I enjoyed in my youth, sixties icons, tragic celebrities, pop art, all things I know a lot about. I am also learning about new subjects, the creative process doesn't start and end with the image, I like to learn all about the subject in the image as I find that helps when designing the piece.
